Excerpt: I bought this to play with raw files. It has a raw format all of my software recognizes as half its resolution. the software supplied will translate the image but not to a better raw format. So its not supported very well. The guys in fuji were very good. They can not help that this does not have a beyer filter sensor. yes I can save it as tiff 100 meg files and they are very good in detail and colour but I feel cheated. At ISO over 200 the picture noise is offensive.
Summary: Not really disappointed, but after having had Canon POS cameras, there are a few conveniences that I miss. With the Fuji, you cannot review photos taken without turning the camera on and extending the lens. Also, the SD card isn't easy to remove unless you have fingernails to grasp and pull it out. For some reason, it must have a different program for videos, as I can't get them moved into Picasa, they go somewhere else that I haven't found yet.
Summary: I was looking forward to getting this camera but was sorely disappointed by the quality of images. Because Fujifilm seems to loves to interlace two smaller images to produce a larger image file this camera produces blurry images. Also I should note that the camera has an issue while recording 1080P and would constantly be trying to find it's focus. I returned this camera and purchased a Sony HX9V which works very well.
Summary: This camera is FANTASTIC! The quality is wonderful. It shoots video very well. 320 FPS was an added bonus! Build quality is wonderful; but don't mess with the zoom lens. It seems to be a bit lower quality than the rest. The only thing that I wish it had was slightly better image stabilization, but I suppose that's probably asking too much. Some of the other reviewers had problems with battery life; I took pictures all day with the GPS off and had no problems.
Summary: Takes great pictures on auto mode. Good thing, because all of the features on this camera are new to me, and I'll probably never learn how to use them all. Has many interesting features, including the ability to take black-and-whites and that old-time yellowish-looking pictures. Takes excellent shots in low-light, and even shoots pictures of the moon and fireworks. I actually got a clear shot of a hummingbird in flight.
